Free Syrian Army Claims Assassination of al-Quntar

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

The Free Syrian Army claimed on Monday its responsibility for the assassination of prominent Hizbullah member Samir al-Quntar in Syria over the weekend.

It denied in a video Hizbullah's claims that Quntar and his companions were killed in an Israeli jet strike, saying that such allegations are aimed at “making light of the FSA's achievements.”

“They are also aimed at raising the morale of its mercenaries,” said the FSA fighters of Hizbullah members engaged in the Syrian conflict.

Addressing the party, the so-called “knights of the Houran brigade” said: “We vow that all of your actions are being monitored and you will not be spared from our future strikes.”

Media reports on Sunday said that Quntar was killed in an Israeli raid near the Syrian capital.

Israeli warplanes targeted a building where Quntar and a number of his companions were residing in Hay al-Homsi in Jarmana southeast of Damascus, killing an unidentified number, they added.

Witnesses said that three missiles were launched at the residential building and led to its total collapse, killing six individuals and wounding another twelve.

Media reports close to Hizbullah said that Israeli warplanes carried out raids on the said location, killing at least nine individuals and an unidentified number were wounded.

Israeli did not claim responsibility for the strikes.

Quntar was imprisoned in 1979 in Israel after he was convicted of murder in an attack that left an Israeli policeman, a father and his two children dead. He was long wanted in Israel for the attack considered one of the grisliest in Israeli history.

Israel released Quntar as part of a prisoner exchange in 2008, three decades after the killings, and has since become a high-profile figure in Hizbullah.

In September the United States placed Quntar on its terror blacklist, saying he had "played an operational role, with the assistance of Iran and Syria, in building up Hizbullah's infrastructure in the Golan Heights."

How much it will hurt, the damage to Lebanon will be 100 times more. as long Israel did not claim for responsibility on the assassination, any action from Hizbullah side will be an act of war. and as you know Southern, it will bring Lebanon to a disaster. besides nobody regrets that someone shortened his way to the meeting with his creator. The revenge of a small baby even Satan did not create.
So, a small suggestion: as he was not mother Teresa's son, let him rotten.

Survived 30 years prison in Israel in a foreign land, then died for the cause of another foreign land. I wish he died fighting for his own land we would have buried him wrapped in a Lebanese flag.

Have just a small question: does the Arabs really need Israel (Zionist, Jews, mass murderers Apartheid state, and so on and on according to the Oriental fantasies) to fight and kill Arabs ? as between us Arabs do it to themselves in greater success. You will never learn that Israel being an independent country is a fact.Problem is the short memory of the Arabs whom are still dreaming of wiping Israel of the map. Lucky that there is state of Israel to be hated by the Arabs. it made you united for a common cause up to few years back, then Israel is forgotten and you started killing each other. we can only imagine what would have happen to Jews in Israel (Palestine ? ) if Jews were loosing only for once. What Isis is doing to Syrian and Iraqi people would have been considered as paradise.

bigjohn: you should only thank your good luck that the Zionists are around, otherwise you would have eating each other in Lebanon. you keep forgetting what Lebanon used to be, the Switzerland of the Mediterranean, how many casualties you had because of the inside war you had, how cruel was this war. the numbers of casualties were much more in 1 year than Israel did in 65 years of its independence.
